With 900 miles of beach, a tropical climate, palm trees galore, and a chain of islands called The Keys, it’s not hard to see why Florida is known as the Sunshine State. The state is home to NASA headquarters at the Kennedy Space Centre, the magical Walt Disney World in Orlando and the Everglades National Park - and of course every water sport you could imagine! The weather is perfect all year round, with award-winning beaches, soft golden sands, outlet shopping, easy access to Orlando and the Florida Keys, arts, culture and more.
Deemed the "glamour" capital of America, Miami is a multicultural mix of Latin America, the Caribbean, the USA, and Europe. It's also a major business hub in the USA and the top-ranked beach resort on the East Coast, with endless white sand beaches and crystal blue waters.

Homes are selected based on safety of neighborhoods, proximity to public transportation, and cleanliness.
